Sosilawati murder case attracts worldwide media attention

PETALING JAYA: The murder of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya has attracted worldwide media attention.

Online searches produced news reports of the case translated into various languages and hosted on websites in China, Hungary, Australia, Singapore, Canada and many more.

Some websites, such as The Straits Times Singapore, provided comprehensive updates and findings of the case.

UK-based newspaper The Telegraph also provided coverage through its correspondent in neighbouring Bangkok.

Sosilawati, 47, and three others - her lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, and driver Kamaruddin Shansuddin, 44 - went missing on Aug 30 after visiting two brothers, both lawyers, over a land deal.

It was learnt that the founder of the Nouvelles Visage beauty line had engaged the lawyers' services to submit a tender for a piece of land in Bukit Jambul, Penang.
